The Goose Girl at the Well

As part of our Apples Galore event we are delighted to have the help of Camphill to bring you a magical puppet show that will cheer your heart and touch your soul.

The puppet show is an adaptation of the Grimms fairy tale “The Goose Gril at the Well” and is being performed in the Kid’s Tent on the Parade.  This traditional show is primarily for young children and is with musical accompaniment. It promises to be a very special event – try not to miss it!

Flour Milling

Saturday 23rd, 2:30pm-4pm, Forgotten Skills Pavilion, The Parade

The Forgotten Skills tent is all about re-skilling, that great corner stone of Transition Town thinking. This year we will have a demonstration of milling wheat using a traditional mill stone.
